Check the local 10 PM news.

Gas prices most likely to increase.

Thanks Harvey!

Appears that Harvey may have stalled. Now that storm is over land the High in southern Colorado might be influencing it.

Just getting nice, steady rain with a light breeze here in Alamo Ranch. I woke up at 5 something and laid there listening to the soothing sound of the rain. Then I hear "clink, clink, clink" of my wrought iron fence on the side of the house, where I have a gate. I heard it again. I was out last night moving things into the garage, so I thought maybe I left the gate open. I can't have the gate swinging around if the wind picks up.

I got out of a nice cozy bed and put on a raincoat w/hood and some flip flops and got a flashlight. Went down the steps to the ground, walked to the side of the house. That gate is closed. Walked the length of the house to check the other gate, and my flashlight lights up a critter trying to come into the back yard at the gate! A glance was all it took for me to high-tail it back to the porch, where I proceeded to light up the ground from a safe place. Whatever it was was gone, nowhere to be seen. It looked like an armadillo just from my glance. I would have liked to have seen it from my perch!

So now I am up and online on CD. I wish all of us here in San Antonio and the affected areas of Harvey safety for us, our families and our living spaces!

The best way to volunteer for help is to go through reputable agencies like the Red Cross and UMCOR. Just showing up is not going to help. Contact an agency and they can help you help.

Seems to be best info. Have a weather watcher in a parking garage in Victoria. His inputs have been ahead and better than the Weather Channel.

Here is a very interesting "flood plane map" people might want to check for their area or those of their loved ones!

ArcGIS Web Application

PLEASE NOTE when you go in to the map here you must click on the fact you AGREE with their restrictions before you view, but you can get right down to your street to see just how far away you are from a flood plane you might/might not be aware of.

Costco has joined in, so if you need anything and not a member, hop on over there where supplies are still to be had.

Started listening to WOAI via Internet Iluvradio but nothing from the Victoria source...
Not to sound petulant but the news media including Weather Channel seem to give lot of time to Corpus and nothing really bad happened in Corpus
It was downside of the eye...had no direct contact...the surge from the bay was less than Rockport and the winds are less...still high, yes, but that was not major damage center...

It is a larger town though and has bigger viewing population and reputation but it is frustrating when seems there are areas in worse shape getting less coverage...
